Nice hike for all skill levels. Very well maintained trail with several other trails leading off of main trail. Nice restroom facilities at trailhead (South entrance). Mile markers marking the trail. Watch for horse poop, quite a lot on the trail. Small pond with viewing area.

I brought my 2 service dogs and it was great!!!
6/2/2016 (Thursday) - These two adjacent community parks are good for 1-2 hours' walk, with well-maintained trails in the cool forest. PSE Powerline Trail also stretches to these two marks. Farrel-McWhirter is larger, much more interesting, features a lot of facilities, paved roads and parking lots. In its center, there are stables, and many small-sized horses for kids. There are also lawns and playgrounds.
4/5/2015 (Tuesday) -- Pleasant easy walk in the woods with multiple loops to choose, light traffic, enjoyable solitude. In addition to a larger parking lot on the southern end as the map shows, there is also a small parking lot on the northern end (218th Ave NE), which the map does not show.
Lovely easy trail for beginners like me. Features few elevation gain, wide and well maintained wood trails.
Because it is a nature preserve, pets aren't allowed. However, I crossed paths with a couple of hikers with dogs - apparently didn't realise of this restriction. Not sure how it is enforced.
